Happy 400th Post!

Hello! Guess what? Style Bard Shoes has hit the unbelieveable 400th post! That's 400 times the Style Bard sat at her keyboard and put together a picture of a shoe she loves with details about its sale, lovingly combined to create a shoe sale bulletin for you. That's more than a year's worth of a sale a day!

Recently, we've mixed it up with some special features, such as St. Patrick's Day for a week (all green shoes), and currently, Easter for a week (sophisticated spring sandals, etc). However, I must promise you -- a makeover! Who doesn't love a makeover? Full disclosure: I haven't been excited about the site in awhile, but I came up with some ways to make the process much more streamlined for readers and shoppers alike (it'll be both more entertaining and user-friendly). I'm probably going to take a week off sometime soon to implement the changes and get on the ball. It's going to be exciting, and I hope you think so, too.

In the meantime, let's celebrate 400 amazing posts with a reminder that Style Bard and Style Bard Shoes are both up for some great awards -- the Fabbies and the Glam Network Awards! Here are the links -- pretty please throw some votes my way! It's a modest blog in these here parts, and we don't expect to win, but I'd love to represent my humble following if you can spare a few minutes of your time.

Linkies for Style Bard Shoes:

St. Patrick's Day from Zappos

St. Patrick's Day is the perfect time to point out one thing I love about Zappos. You can find shoes that specifically meet your criteria, by selecting what you're looking for not only by color (green) but also by style, height, size, width, or price. When I need one kind of shoe, I go to Zappos first because it's just so easy. These festive Nine West 'Favorly' d'orsays are perfect for celebration this Irish holiday, in green satin with sparkling rhinestone accents.

Save an Extra 20% on Shoes at Macy's!

I'm not sure I can put my finger on the simple, strong appeal of these classic Tahari peep toe pumps. I like the oversized buckle, and how it doesn't overpower the shoe, I like that it looks like it can be dressed up or down. I like the juxtaposition of the more elegant gold streamlined heel with the large patent buckle at the toe. Overall, it has many dimensions to it, it's a complex shoe designed by one of my favorite "high-end affordable" brands, Tahari. As a Macy's cardholder, you can shop all shoes for an additional 20% off now through March 16th, and for St. Patrick's Day, I say these are the must-have shoes in this sale.

Free Shipping from Macy's!

I bet you never knew how luxe a green sandal could get. I love how Marc Fisher pairs the subtle metallic hues with the shiny metallic jewels at the toe, and how the chunky rhinestones contrast nicely with the delicate ankle straps. A beautiful shoe doing new things with the 'green shoe' theme of the week. They're on sale at Macy's for approximately 25% off, and you can also take advantage of Free Shipping with an apparel purchase of at least $100 and the code SPRING.

St. Patrick's Day from Amazon

Amazon is promoting a great selection of Green Shoes right now for St. Patrick's Day, many of which are on sale - or at the very least, being offered for incredible fair prices to begin with. My only complaint would be that by searching 'green' you get a lot of tagged items that don't necessarily fit within the description, shoes without a hint of green color to be seen on the shoe, which seems to me to be clearly what the shopper is searching for. Anyway, all of that aside, these handsome Mary Jane Pumps from Newport News are now on sale for only $25.00! That's 28% off the original price - now that's a steal. These will look great under a flirty sundress as well as paired with jeans. Conservatively treated, I can see these going to work with you as well. Also available in SIX other bright and fun colors!

St. Patrick's Day at Old Navy

While for most of us, it's still a tad early to be eyeing flip-flops in the mall, (ie, snow still on the ground), for many lucky, lucky guys and gals St. Patrick's Day means Spring, and warmer weather, and the sandals make their big debut. For those of you ready to leap into Spring and get your sandal shopping done, I will always, always advocate Old Navy's flip-flops. They last FOREVER, they're super-comfortable, they come in all kinds of zany colors and prints, and they're $5 or $4when you buy 2 or more! Really! How can you buy even buy one pair with that deal on the table? Grab these now and have them in time for St. Patty's.
